I wish you all a happy new year! May this year be even better than the previous!
Today I wanted to introduce myself to you. Once you realize that you and only you can choose what you are going to post on social media and that only you can control what kind of a person people are going to see on your social media and blog channels – it’s a mind-blowing realization. (Visit me on my Instagram account sabixsm) I know this sounds funny but I realized that the things I post actually represent a totally different person. That’s why I wanted to tell you a little bit more about myself .
Did you know that being a happy optimistic person can be a blessing but also a curse? Let me tell you more…
So today, I’ll unravel my mind to you and present to you one fact about me (for starters). I bet you didn’t know that I’m actually the same type of person as the “Sunny Day” girl from season 8 “Scrubs”. I literally laugh and smile all the time, when I’m happy, when I’m nervous, when I meet new people even when I’m scared, I’ve got that nervous cracking laugh. Even writing this down makes me smile because now I realize what kind of a freak I am.
And the saddest part of it all is that laughing was very much a problem a lot of the times. In school, people told me I had to be high to laugh that much – which also, made me laugh more.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Later on, meeting parents of my former boyfriends was really weird. One time, I was so joyful and happy – I just thought everything worked out fine, although they were analyzing me the whole time which made me a bit nervous (which, of course, made me chuckle) – according to my former boyfriend, the only thing they said about me was “she sure laughs a lot”. But not in an approving way.
Stuff like that happened really often as people would act more serious around me like they were trying to say “get your shit together”.
But although all of that happened, they didn’t get me down. I don’t care, I’m an optimistic, kind and helpful person, that’s just who I am. And there were many times when laughing and smiling was the right thing to do.
I’ll never forget one friend of mine saying: “Sabina, you always laugh at my jokes, around you I almost feel like I’m an interesting person.”. He told me that I actually help him build up his confidence. And that’s how he has built up mine.
It’s me again and this time I’m introducing to you an Influencer Edition Video! 🙂 I got invited to the Lush Influencer Showroom where I was introduced to the new Christmas Edition Bath Bombs, Lipsticks and wonderful Perfumes. I’ve talked to a lot of people on Instagram about Lush products and the reflections on the brand are divided into positive and negative!
What do you think? Please share your opinion in the comments below and follow me on YouTube and Instagram for more!
The brand advertises itself as vegan/vegetarian, freshly made cosmetics with natural ingredients. I would say that the ingredients are MOSTLY natural but they do consist of fillers and preservatives. Also, I do advise girls to be careful with the bath bombs, since a lot of people told me that they can mess up the pH values down there. But I think that this happens with any bath cosmetic product, shower gels etc. if not used properly.
PRODUCTION IN CROATIA
A really cute thing I’ve found out during the visit to the Lush Christmas Editon Introduction is that the production for Lush Austria is held in Samobor, Croatia – a very cute small Croatian city near Zagreb – which means that they really rely on cruelty-free practices since they use honey, yogurt and eggs from farm animals that live freely and happily in Croatia’s farms “We’ve been fighting against animal testing for more than 30 years because we don’t believe in cruelty to animals: not for food, not for clothing and definitely not for cosmetics.”
On the other hand, Croatian labor is cheaper so its a win-win for them. 😀
They produce cosmetics without plastic packaging! You can choose between two options for lipsticks: the lipstick in plastic sleeves – they recycle their own products and reuse the plastic for the lipstick sleeves, also you can buy the naked lipstick refill – a refill for used up MAC lipstick sleeves. Also the CINDER Shower Gel seen in the video above is one of the NAKED products.
Once again, there’s a corporate decision behind everything and not having plastic packaging also means cheaper production (but no lower prices?!) – still, I’m fine with that, as long as they keep on recycling and reducing plastic packaging – let’s help mother earth!
THE PRODUCTS SMELL AMAZING!
Let’s be honest, the products really smell amazing! And some of the favourites were turned into perfumes and perfume oils! How cool is that?
I’ve received a sample from the Calacas Spray Perfume which you can also see in the video above. It has a wonderful sweet lemon scent, but I do not recommend it for everybody since my boyfriend says that I smell like a freshly washed bathroom.
THE CHRISTMAS EDITION
Santa Bomb Bomb is the bath bomb I received as a sample ans it smells amazing! It consists of two bombs, one for the body and the other is the head – vanilla, cocoa and bergamot oil. He’s sitting on my desk and my whole room smells like heaven because of him. Thanks Santa!
Other Christmas edition products – Snow Fairy Sparkle Jar (NAKED Sparkle Oil!! The pink star is made of cocoa butter and filled with sparkling powder!! How cool is that? But watch out – mine melted in my bag the way home and the powder spilled out 😦 That sucks.
Snowman Bomb Bomb, Princess Bomb Bomb and many others which you can also see in the video above!

I’ve finally made up my mind and decided to post my very first blog post.
I never was much of a writer, I didn’t even write blog posts in my teenage years when it was considered a ritual for the cool kids. So don’t expect too much from me and my abilities to express my thoughts in a professional manner. All I can give you is
